Bobby Vinton Sings the Golden Decade of Love is a two-LP collection of previously recorded songs by Bobby Vinton, released in 1975 by Epic Records. It reached #154 on the Billboard Hot 200 list of popular albums. The material (along with the album With Love) was rushed for release to take advantage of the popularity of his hit "My Melody of Love" (his first hit for ABC Records).

This collection contains songs recorded by Vinton over his 12-years with Epic that had originally been hits for other artists in the 1950s (this collection calls that era of music the "golden decade of love"); along with seven other songs that were made popular during the 1950s, it contains all 12 songs from his fifth album The Greatest Hits of the Golden Groups. "Over the Mountain (Across the Sea)" (which was a hit for Johnnie & Joe in 1957) is the only single featured on this collection (it reached #23 in 1963). This collection marks the first album appearance of the song "Just a Dream".
